    Hi ladies,
    I'm 16 weeks and the last week I've been suffering really really bad headaches.
    Now I'm prone to headaches anyway so know my normal headaches and these are awful and don't really go away with paracetamol.
    I wouldn't be totally concerned if it wasn't for the fact that the last 3-4 weeks I've been swelling quite alot, I had to take my wedding ring off at 14 weeks!
    The swelling is very unusual for me until it gets warmer!

    I know they are signs of pre eclampsia but everywhere I've read says it is extremely rare before 20 wks.

    Has anyone had this before and been absolutely fine? I feel like I'm huge this time round and it's probably due to all the swelling.

    Any advice would be great

    Hi! I think any such concern is best to be discussed with your doctor. Batter safe… good luck!
